TolarianScientist you must have been reading my mind or something!! I was at a LGS last night and saw a Forbidden Orchard in the case and my first thought was to put it in this deck to always have that target to trigger off Toshiro. Picked it up and it is queued up and ready to go in. Excellent suggestion and thank you! I like it cause it's somewhat unexpected and a little bizarre but it's a super fun deck. Every meetup this deck has won at least one of the games it has been in and has never flamed out first. Keeps games interesting as they are never quite the same and requires flexibility, but all the tools for fury and fun are in there :)

I think you could play Forbidden Orchard to be sure your opponents have creatures. Very interesting and crazy deck!

Not too much, but my meta has a number of low creature count decks running around, so I thought maybe running a couple cards besides Forbidden Orchard to ensure triggers might be worth it.

For myself and others, how to optimally pilot the deck

Philosophy behind the deck, ideally should be played with 2+ other players.

You are a hard to kill end game boss, blue is boring busted and broken and is also expensive. Try to go for cards that will keep your hand healthy since we are not running blue so think how much you can squeeze out of one card for maximum value.

Show

If you are good on mana the first couple of two card instant win combos will both require Heliod, Sun-Crowned. Be sure to use the activated ability on the other combo piece by giving them lifelink Walking Ballista normally played from hand and normally will need to be cast for 4 colorless mana. Heliod, Sun-Crowned can also combo with Triskelion cost 6 colorless mana and can be cast straight from library or graveyard to play without dying unlike Walking Ballista.

Walking Ballista will want cards like Demonic Tutor , Congregation at Dawn better yet Shared Summons

while Triskelion will want cards like Defense of the Heart , Tooth and Nail with the added 2 colorless for entwine (if it's already in hand just pick a different creature and still summon the creatures you want in hand.)

The next big combo piece requires Dockside Extortionist to get the mana engine running if low, if you are netting 4 or more treasure tokens you can go infinite with Eldrazi Displacer if the treasure tokens remain you can stop mostly all creatures as they hit battlefield or are entering combat for a lockdown by blinking the creatures in an early enough response.

A third piece combo to draw your deck with is Korvold, Fae-Cursed King sacrifice enough treasure tokens to draw your whole deck and play Revel in Riches and then Final Fortune.

Other three piece card combo include Oketra's Last Mercy , Felidar Sovereign into Final Fortune, lastly Wall of Blood , Near-Death Experience into Final Fortune.

Oath of Druids Best way to cheat in creatures, take advantage of Forbidden Orchard

Shifting Shadow will still work even if you are trying to destroy an indestructible creature during upkeep reveal the next creature while still keeping the previous one. Can be easily retrieved if no graveyard hate.

Sun Titan can even get a land into play

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord+Wall of Blood if you have higher health than all opponents.

Thespian's Stage or Mirage Mirror+Dark Depths 20/20 flying indestructible legendary token combos with Mayael's Aria , I ended up cutting Vampire Hexmage

Green Sun's Zenith ramp for a single forest zero cmc Dryad Arbor or get rid of a huge threat with Reclamation Sage

Crop Rotation into Glacial Chasm in critical moment before losing the game from combat damage. Exactly 31 life can buy up to 5 turns consecutively (2,4,6,8,10)

Elvish Reclaimer does the same thing, also get Riftstone Portal into graveyard as it helps against Blood Moon

Chromatic Lantern can negate damage lands and lands with downside and can make useless lands useful.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth+Cabal Coffers maximum ramp the reason to try to run less artifacts.

Birthing Pod you can sacrifice zero cmc token creatures for a one drop ect.

kingtuf on Glissa the Traitor needs some help

1 week ago

Any Glissa, the Traitor deck rude enough to play Mindslaver should be running Forbidden Orchard. These three cards form a perma-lock on a single player so long as you are not disrupted. Also, consider looking into some self mill. With Glissa, your graveyard becomes a toolbox/hand-extension that you really want to see filled. Dakmor Salvage, Stinkweed Imp and Golgari Thug are all cheap dredgers that can turn one card draw into 2-5 in the graveyard. Hell, even Golgari Grave-Troll is cheap now that it's banned in modern. If you want to break the bank a bit, Life from the Loam and good utility lands like Strip Mine, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth or Cabal Coffers are all very happy to live in this deck. If you're looking for cards to drop, I know they can be fun and are a little safer to use with Glissa's ability, but cards like Nemesis Mask and Viridian Longbow are so, so much better off as instant speed removal spells like Putrefy or Windgrace's Judgment. Golgari removal spells hit a wider range of targets and many run at instant speed, making them far more versatile than the cheeky equipment shenanigans Glissa can do. Remember, all she cares about is seeing a creature die, she doesn't need to be the one to do it! Hope something here helps you out. I have a 75% Glissa deck that runs several of the cards I mentioned here and I have to say she is easily my favorite commander. Best of luck!

Hey, Worldgorger Dragon combo could replace Iona. Emergence Zone could replace Sanctuary. Reanimation is a good secondary strategy with Kaalia and reanimation is what enablers Worldgorger combo. Bogardan Hellkite can be a win condition with the Worldgorger combo and Kaalia can cheat Hellkite onto the battlefield. The Worldgorger combo would give you an alternative way to win the game which has synergy with Kaalia and strategies you want to play with Kaalia.

Cards to consider adding for Worldgorger combo:

Other cards to consider adding:

You could upgrade some threats with Vilis, Broker of Blood and Doom Whisperer.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Seraph Sanctuary
  • Dragonskull Summit
  • Clifftop Retreat
  • Isolated Chapel
  • Iona, Shield of Emeria
  • Archfiend of Depravity
  • Ob Nixilis, Unshackled
  • Lord of the Void
  • Angelic Arbiter
  • Baneslayer Angel
  • Merciless Eviction
  • Duelist's Heritage
  • Strionic Resonator
  • Ghostway
  • Utter End

Good luck with your deck.

Any plans to update your mana base? Could use a few shocks and some fetches possibly. Not sure what your budget is, but i figure you can probably afford a few of them if you own an expropriate lol. Exotic Orchard and Forbidden Orchard could be good for ya.
